I've been wanting to do this sort of shot for years but never got around to it.
I'd been having trouble finding a location that would give me some height and a good length of road to view at night, so I eventually found myself on top of this footbridge overlooking the A184 trunk road into South Shields near Tyne Dock.
The gently curving road leads out of town towards the motorway network and Newcastle upon Tyne. The faint light on the left was from a cyclist on the footpath.
I have another really nice shot of the view behind me, I'll show it shortly, after I've scouted another footbridge further up the road.
